How to impress women

Question for the ladies here at DC or any lady, or any one who wants to inlightin me.

If a guy plays the guitar for you, does that make him more attractive or impress you at all. Hmm, maybe impress is not the word im looking for. Im just curious. Im trying to find the RIGHT things to say to a girl rather than the wrong things. Im also trying to find what impresses them. There has to be a universal principle for women.

Thanx all

I am not a woman so take what I am saying for what it is worth, but what I have found is the best way to impress a woman is to be true to yourself. If you like to play guitar then play guitar. If you like children then play with the kids. If you hate to cook then don't do it just to impress her.

I know it sounds like a tired old cliche, but just be yourself and don't try to impress her. She will be impressed with who you are if you two click.

So you think if a guy plays a song for you, that would be impressive. Sweet action.

I'm not that musical and it's no big deal to me, so I voted for the other three. Could be too I dated some musicians when I was young and wasn't impressed!

ETA - Gotta agree with GB, be true to yourself or it won't work at all!

Cool Cool. Yeah i tried the whole TRY to impress but that got me no where. But when you first meet a new girl/guy, for some reason i do not act my self 100% more like 80%. That bugs me because i feel like im trying to be something im not. Hard to explain what i mean.

After 36 years of marriage I can unequivocally say"

1. No matter how right I am, I am always wrong (and so will you be if you get to the point of saying 'I do'). It just works that way.

2. The universal principle for women is that there are no universal principles.

3. One "Aw geezz" will wipe out 500 "Atta-boys" and you are back to square one trying to win her over again.


My question for you is, "Why did you even go here?" You obviously must be very young.

I came here for opinions is all. Just to see what others had to say. Very young to you maybe but not very young to me. Im 24. Im young but not very young.

Someone once told mew that women in general do not care about certain things. They continued on about those certain things and it just so happened that i do a majority of those certain things that apparently dont impress women. When i read that i did feel somewhat bad because those things are who i am. So i wanted a second opinion.

No, they are all different, and you will never figure any of them out.
